Makhosi is a newborn female white rhino calf rescued when rangers noticed she was unable to suckle from her mother, and without human intervention, she would not survive if left in the wild.
We want to eradicate the gray rhino in the cyber risk world; however, we strongly support saving them in the real world.Black Kite Team
The Gray Rhino
In the book Gray Rhino, author Michele Wucker says, “A ‘gray rhino’ is a highly probable, high impact yet neglected threat: kin to both the elephant in the room and the improbable and unforeseeable black swan.”
Black Kite believes the risk companies face today from the supply chain is truly a gray rhino. Our philosophy is to help our clients identify their ‘third-party gray rhinos’ before they become an issue. In the animal kingdom, Rhinos are an endangered species. While we want to eradicate the gray rhino in the risk world, we strongly support saving them in the real world. To that effect, Black Kite has adopted Makhosi, an orphaned rhino through Helping Rhinos.

The Zulu Royal family witnessed the team busy setting up drips to stabilize her condition in the back of their vet vehicle, in a garage en route to the Orphanage. They named and blessed Makhosi, meaning leader or royalty in the Zulu language.
What Our Clients Are Saying
“An excellent platform that we used to replace a legacy security rating vendor. The level of detail that Black Kite provides is unparalleled. We are extremely pleased with the information that we are receiving and are using to not just evaluate ourselves and our third-party vendors but also other organizations that we have a stake in.”
“Much more attention to detail than competing solutions. Support and customer relations – very strong. Initially missing some features… this gap was promptly closed – as promised.”
“My overall experience with Black Kite has been nothing short of superb. The team is patient, knowledgeable, and demonstrates exceptional value in the third-party cyber risk space. We have been a customer for more than two years, love how they listen to our feedback and am always amazed when some of it shows up in a new release of the service. I would highly recommend Black Kite to any organization or entity looking to assess the cyber risk and financial impact of third parties.”
